    Robert Little The Underground World Superman Short Production Background Animation Art (Paramount/Famous Studios, 1943). In the short, The Underground World, originally released to theaters by Paramount on June 18, 1943, Superman faces a race of cave-dwelling bird people. Any artwork from the famed Fleischer Studios Superman cartoons is incredibly rare and desirable, as these are some of the most impressive and fondly remembered animated shorts ever to be produced. This handsome piece by artist Robert Little was recently featured on page 78 of The DC Vault. It was painted in mixed media on a 12.5" x 9" sheet of heavy paper, and mounted to another 14" x 10.5" sheet of peg punched paper, and signed by the artist at the lower right. The work is framed and in Very Good condition.
